That Ol'blackmagic - "Magic"
Magic is a 15.1 hh Thoroughbred gelding, born in 2007. He is sweet, personable, mellow and sensible. He has been shown dressage successfully at Training and First Level with scores in the mid-60s. He has been shown over fences at 2', schooled to 2'6". In his first season of showing, he won two year-end Reserve Championships in dressage and a Thoroughbred Incentive Program (TIP) High Point award for Combined Training. He has also participated in hunter paces and is quiet on the trail. He has even dabbled a little in Western, winning a TIP award his first time out! Magic is an all-around great guy but he prefers relaxed riders with quiet hands.
Magic is a huge fan of napping and carrots.
Fully leased to Tanya and Allison.
Picasso - "Pica"
Picasso is a 15.1 hh Lippizan/Friesian cross born in 2004, and entrusted to us by a dear friend for use in our program. He has a giant, cheeky personality and an incredible amount of training. He has lovely gaits that are easy to ride. He has been shown Second Level and is a wonderful trail horse.
Pica will do anything for cookies - bow, count, pick up your hat - anything!
Part leased to Kate and regular lesson mount for Charlene, Lisa and Karen.
Maui is a 16.1 hh British Warmblood born in 2007, and owned by our dear friend and client, Kimberly. She's a sensitive mare who really aims to please. She is in full training and has been shown by Emily. She fills in for lessons occasionally, always to the excitement of students. Maui is the best teacher of riding with lightness.
Once Maui has decided you're family she will defend her territory!
Raise the Limit - "Rufus/Ru"
Ru is a 16 hh OTTB born in 1997, and is owned by our student Thomas. He is generously loaned to our program for beginner lessons. Ru had a very successful career on the A Circuit in hunters and jumpers, and evented to Training Level. While he is in the twilight of his career he has a lot of wisdom to impart and loves having a job. He is rhythmic and steady but has occasional moments of very mild sass just to remind us that he's definitely not old!
Ru takes long naps laying flat out in the sun and enjoys being told he's the most wonderful horse in the world.
Mr. Norman - "Norman"
Norman is a 16.2 hh Thoroughbred gelding, born in 2012. He's quirky and precocious and we wouldn't want him any other way! After leaving the race track he had a year to adjust to his new life and began regular work. Because he is Emily's personal horse he is the first to get put on the back burner. He is currently living the life of Riley with Fiona in pasture just down the road.
Norman enjoys being the center of attention, but on his terms. Bucket time is his favorite time.
Fiona E. Pona - "Fiona"
Fiona is a senior 13.1 hh American Paint Pony mare. She had a long and successful career being the Best Pony Ever where she jumped all the things, did all the trails better than any mountain goat, ponied the sassy younger and taller horses, held it together just long enough to quadrille, and never failed to be the fiercest partner one could ever ask for. She is currently in retirement, keeping Norman company. Should the right rider come along she is perfectly capable of returning to the working world!
Fiona is sweet but very business-like. She would be happy to trail ride every day and has requested retirement from arena work.
